Re: Penet Spoofing



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----

I would like to add that I have evidently been a victim of "penet
spoofing" as well, since I too received the following message from
penet:

>You have sent a message using the anonymous contact service.
>You have been allocated the code name anXXXXX
>You can be reached anonymously using the address
>[email protected]

Somebody is trying to be clever and forging mail to figure out
my penet id (surprise, I don't have one, but now I do).

When I got this message, I immediately sent off in an attempt to set
my password.  I haven't heard back yet, so I don't know if it was
successful or not.  If the password set fails, then somebody has taken
over anXXXXX and I'll be mailing Julf in order to get it removed.

Whoever wants to know my penet id... I'll save you some trouble:

an4609 - my old (now expired) account [email protected]
an5022 - my old (now expired/locked) account [email protected]

Now, of course, I have a new one, which somebody has thoughtfully
started up for me.
